The Work & Leisure exhibition features ‘BigBoxIndustrialAction’, commissioned especially for this Manchester show, in which a giant sound system meets a three-tonne relic from the Industrial Revolution. This work will be the centrepiece for a series of live performances. So expect immense sounds but don’t be put off by the performance art label. Matthew Higgs once said of Leckey’s work, it’s not pretentious; instead it possesses ‘a strange, non-art-like quality, operating, as it does, on the knife’s edge where art and life meet’.
